Inspired by the imposing architectural profiles and irrepressible energy of New York City, Joseph Stella completed his first painting of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1920 and returned to the theme a number of times in succeeding years. Stella used pastel as an experimental mode in which to work out his denser and highly finished modernist abstractions in oil.

After many year abroad, Joseph Pennell settled in Brooklyn Heights in 1921. His upper-story apartment afforded magnificent views of New York, its waterways, and its bridges—all of which were regular subjects in his art. Pennell achieved the tenebrous effects of this work with aquatint, an etching technique in which the picture is conceived in tone rather than line. Aquatint uses a plate coated with a porous, grainy ground. During the bath, acid bites the underlying metal around the tiny...

In this studio portrait, the Brooklyn artist Harry Edwards painted the Native American Handsome Morning, wearing a fringed shift with painted emblems, a bead-and-quill necklace, beaded moccasins, and a ceremonial blanket of fur-lined buffalo hide painted with abstract motifs (a speciality of Dakota women). Edward's identification of his sitter as a Dakota, or a Sioux, is meaningful because the Sioux retained perhaps the most lasting hold on white imaginations owing to the charismatic Ghost...

Eugene and Elsie Speicher and Robert and Marjorie Henri were close friends of George and Emma Bellows’s and appear often in lithographs that Bellows made in 1921. Here the women enjoy an intimate conversation on the settee in the Bellowses’ sitting room, while the husbands converse in the background. One of the most talented of Henri’s students, Bellows quickly became a popular member of the Henri circle. Speicher (1883–1962) was another Henri student who had become a successful...

After encountering French Cubism in Paris, Charles Demuth produced a large body of still-life and architectural watercolors based in a Cubist-inspired faceting of forms. Particularly drawn to the small-town American architecture of his native Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where he continued to spend a significant amount of time, Demuth transposed the architectural volumes into two-dimensional designs of selected planes set off by precisely ruled lines. Within these compositions, the tones and...

Expressive design was always at the heart of Marguerite Zorach’s art. Basing her imagery on some firsthand sketches (in this case made on a trip to Yosemite in 1920), Zorach preferred to work away from her original motifs in nature to achieve a composition independent of direct observation. Employing a decorative approach—with formal patterns and non-naturalistic colors—in a number of media, she initially was best known for her hand-sewn pictorial tapestries, for which her watercolors...

William Zorach developed his modernist approach after studying at the progressive Paris art school La Palette. Typical of the work in watercolor that he pursued throughout his career—even after he abandoned oil painting for sculpture in 1922—this magical image was based on a five-month sojourn in Yosemite. Exploiting liquid watercolor washes to create soft-edged forms in gem-like colors, Zorach conveyed the transcendent quality he experienced in that landscape, which he described as “the...

"Letting people have your paintings is like letting them wear your clothes." So said Florine Stettheimer, who was intensely private about her art, displaying it mainly to a select group of artist and writer friends. Her typically quirky mix of fantasy and reality is present in Heat —a family portrait of her mother, herself (lower right), and her three sisters gathered to celebrate Mrs. Stettheimer's birthday. The painter Marsden Hartley wrote of her work: "It is as if these...

In the late 1910s Weber arrived at his own brand of Synthetic Cubism, typified here by a riot of intersecting planar shapes of varied patterns, colors, and textures. Emerging from this confusion of forms are four figures--two men and two women. Although it is difficult to attach a specific narrative to the painting, it may be that we see a courtship ritual, with the couple on the right under the scrutiny of watchful (and perhaps slightly disapproving) parents on the left.

In 1912 Stanton MacDonald-Wright and his colleague Morgan Russell invented the term Synchromy to refer to their experiments in making abstract compositions whose primary emphasis was on color. Although both artists were inspired by Cubism, they set out to reassert the importance of color in relationship to line in the creation of form.

One of Germany’s leading Symbolists, Stuck frequently painted biblical or mythological subjects that addressed dark themes such as sin and death. Particularly interested in the narrative and details of the Crucifixion, Stuck devoted several canvases to this subject late in his career, during the difficult years of World War I. Calling on new scholarly theories regarding the Gospel accounts, Stuck departs from tradition and places Christ at eye level with the witnesses to his sufferings. The...
